Trade deal praised as good for Iowa farmers and manufacturers
The North American trade deal inked this week known as USMCA earned praise from Gov. Kim Reynolds, who said it would expand markets for Iowa producers with Iowa’s top trading partners – Mexico and Canada.
“President Trump successfully negotiated a strong, balanced and reciprocal trade agreement that will benefit Iowa and the entire nation,” Reynolds said in a statement. “Years from now, USMCA will prove to be a major boost to Iowa’s economy, especially for families, farmers, manufacturers and small businesses.”
Gov. Reynolds makes appointment to the Iowa Supreme Court
Gov. Kim Reynolds this week appointed Swisher attorney Dana Oxley to serve as a new justice on the Iowa Supreme Court to fill a vacancy created by the death of Chief Justice Mark Cady last year. Oxley practices with a prominent Cedar Rapids law firm and serves as an adjunct law professor at the University of Iowa College of Law.
“Dana Oxley is an exceptional lawyer with a uniquely Iowa story,” Reynolds said in a statement announcing the appointment. “She will be a valuable new addition to the Iowa Supreme Court. I look forward to watching her serve Iowans in this important role for years to come.”
